Inquiries

Farm Lane, Leckhampton

DATE: 26 Mar 2009

Robert Walton acted for Tewkesbury Borough Council at call-in inquiry into 360 houses. The key issues included whether development would prejudice comprehensive planning and development of an Area of Search identified in the draft RSS; assessment of housing need; appropriate infrastructure contributions; and adequacy of proposed design. 

The Secretary of State and Inspector accepted the Council's case that the scheme would prejudice the proper planning of the area and refused permission despite acknowledged significant shortfall of housing.
